Herederos de Marqués de Riscal

Herederos de Marqués de Riscal Review

The village of Elciego, 6 km (4 miles) southeast of Laguardia, is the site of the historic Marqués de Riscal winery. Tours of the vineyards—among the most legendary in La Rioja—as well as the cellars are conducted in various languages, including English. Reservations are required. The estate also includes the stunning Frank Gehry-designed Hotel Marqués de Riscal, crafted out of waves of metal reminiscent of his Guggenheim Bilbao.
